Communication is important and it’s something that the Mets need to work on improving and fast if they want any success in the near future. The last couple of seasons have shown how the lack of communication has hurt this franchise on and off the field. The Mets promised things would be different this year, but it’s clear that not much has changed from a season ago. Carlos Beltran’s surgery is a key example of […]
I was ready to accept the fact that Omar Minaya made a really horrible decision when he re-signed Oliver Perez last year to a 3-year deal worth $36 million. I was a Perez fan back in the 2006 playoffs, especially when he did a commendable job starting Game 7 of the NLCS. Of course, since then Ollie has battled injuries and inconsistency, mostly the latter. And he was really pretty bad last season, ultimately finishing […]
One of the best westerns of all-time is ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.’ In one scene, Tuco, played by Eli Wallach, is getting the hell beat out of him by a soldier who is nearly three times his size. Beaten, injured and demoralized the bloody Tuco looks up at his assailant and speaks the words, “I like big men like you. When you fall you make more noise.” This reminds me of the […]
I knew I wanted to write something about the Mets’ starting rotation after reading an article in The Sporting News about the Mets being one of this off-season’s “losers,” citing the fact that they did not address the “gaping holes” in the starting pitching rotation. Well, yeah, but we are likely going to go into the 2010 season with a starting staff of Johan Santana, John Maine, Mike Pelfrey, Ollie Perez and Fernando Nieve. And […]
Any day now, pitchers and catchers will begin reporting to spring training all across Florida and Arizona. In a few weeks, all teams, including our Mets, will begin their spring training games, and then less than two months from now, Johan Santana will likely be throwing the first live pitch for the Mets since last October. Usually around this time of year, once the Super Bowl has been played and sports docket is less than […]
Spring Training is upon us, and as pitchers and catchers are getting ready to report to Port St. Lucie, I just don’t feel any excitement so far. Usually at this time of year I’m looking forward to Spring Training and the upcoming baseball season, but so far I don’t feel any the usual excitement and anticipation stirring inside me. 2009 was just awful to be a fan of the New York Mets. Injuries and incompetence ran rampant and by […]
Somewhere in heaven, former Mets beloved broadcaster Bob Murphy has bellowed, “Fasten Your Seatbelts,” one more time. With no games to call, he may have been referring to the news that the Mets are interested in former Braves pitcher John Smoltz as a starter. If Murph was back in the booth next season, only he would be older than Smoltz, as employees of the floundering Mets organization. Perhaps Omar Minaya has already made inroads […]
The Mets sent a press release out yesterday about the Dave Matthews Band shows just announced for Citi Field, on July 16 and 17. Sure, this is significant for you DMB fans (tickets go on sale February 26), but the problem is, it also might be the most significant event at Citi Field this season. Because by mid-July, it’s quite possible the Mets could be out of the playoff race. It’s easy to be skeptical […]
Free agent catcher Bengie Molina has rejected the latest offer from the Mets, according to a tweet by Buster Olney of ESPN. Heard this: Bengie Molina has turned down the Mets’ most recent offer, and the Mets are beginning to focus on Joel Pineiro. Just last week, Jon Morosi of Fox Sports reported that the Mets were “close” to signing Molina it was expected that something was getting done in 3-4 days. The Mets and Molina have […]
